. and lot to talk about because finally we see some action here in washington, d.c. i was there yesterday in the white house briefing room when president obama announces a task force on guns. he put vice president joe biden in charge. he gave them only one month to come up with a set of recommendations that he would then push through congress. and then he opened up the floor to questions and all the white house press corps wanted to talk about was the fiscal cliff. come on! it just shows how out of it they are. they can't get outside the beltway. they don't know what the american people really care about! all right. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here. but first, before we get to your calls, we'll take time out to get the latest, today current news update from lisa ferguson joining us from los angeles. good morning, lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. that task force is wasting no time getting to work, as bill mentioned, that's the task force president obama commissioned in the wake of
action on the ground that assad may be getting ready for an act of desperation which is using chemical weapons. >> joe, tell us what we know about this stock pile, where they might be and how is it possible for us to prevent them from using them, and is it fair to assume as the ambassador just said, that would be an act of desperation, a sign on his part, of genuine weakness? >> the syrian chemical weapon program has been around for 40 years. it really picked up steam in the 60s, and recently as the mid 90s. we had evidence that russian agents were helping assad secure chemical precursors. we know he has mustard agents, and seron and possibly vx, a more toxic and per citizen tent agent. he has scud missiles, and drop munitions and these are very deadly agents. a few drops on your skin will kill you. we've seen activity at some of the known chemical chemical weapons sites. does not seem is he for securing weapons withweapons but. that's why we heard the president say as directly as he can, the world is watching. if you use these weapons, there will be consequences. >> cenk: let's take t
